How to Play. The game may start like this:

You: I'm going to Manchester to buy a magazine.

Player А: I'm going to Manchester to buy an armchair.

Player В: I'm going to Manchester to buy a necklace.

and so on, every time inserting a noun, beginning with the next letter of the key word.

A player, who can not find an appropriate noun, leaves the game. When the key word ends, you write on the board: 'BIRMINGHAM' and the game continues. In the third round you use 'PORTSMOUTH', in the forth one - 'CANTERBURY' and in the fifth - 'NOTTINGHAM'. During all the game nouns should not be repeated! The game lasts as long as only the winner remains.
